  1. The sky cleared for a spell last night, though there were still patches of cloud floating past, and so I got the scope setup for a bit of observing and imaging. I start hopped from Almaak to bAnd and after a right angle turn to the line of three stars HIP11185, the faint HIP11099, and HIP11090, I managed to find C23. It lies close to HIP11185 on an approximate line back to bAnd. It is pretty faint but with slightly averted vision is certainly looks like a smudgy streak. I only viewed it with my 20 mm EP but I think that a little experimenting at higher power may have helped. I found that that the best views of M51, on previous sessions, were with my 10 mm EP which really helped to contrast the galaxy against the background glow of the sky. The cloud rolling back in last prevented me trying this sadly. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to try again soon.
